I’m still alive!
I’m running short on cash, stripping my book fair budget. They all went to buying books anyway so there wasn’t much disappointment. It’s a super itch I can’t seem to avoid. I hate you Powerbooks and National Bookstore for both holding a month-long sale weeks before the international book fair.
Since I’ve spent a portion of my book fair budget buying books from other sources, when I go to the book fair on Saturday, I will only look for Arkady Renko novels by Martin Cruz Smith, a trade paperback copy of The Ministry of Pain and Endymion Spring, and novels by Vikram Chandra. I have to remind myself that I have jillions of books in my to-be-read pile and I’m beginning to get scared of my mother’s dagger looks whenever she sees me buy new ones.

I am also behind in watching my latest bootleg DVD finds =). However, I’m happy to have watched movies in theaters in succession. Not that it justifies and balances my patronage of bootleg DVDs, but of course I still know that some movies are best viewed on the big screen. I just hope that 1408 won’t disappoint me.
My latest buys. A Clockwork Orange, Cinema Paradiso, Goya’s Ghosts, In The Mood For Love, The Conformist (take note of the critics tomatometer rating!), Transamerica (Lynette! Lynette! =)), Twentynine Palms, Venus, Y Tu Mama Tambien (I watched half of it while on a bus two years ago!) Images courtesy of Rotten Tomatoes.
If it’s any consolation, if I’m still unsuccessful by next month, I’m going to buy original The West Wing DVDs.
I also developed a girl-crush on Audrey Tautou. It was unintentional to have watched Amelie (DVD) and The Da Vinci Code (HBO) in succession last Sunday.
I know it’s too late of a reaction, but season 3 of Desperate Housewives premiered on Star World last night…at the same time as Studio 60 which I thought would be replaced by Nip/Tuck but I love you ETC 2nd Avenue, you moved 6 episodes back and aired The Disaster Show last night!

Work is still the same. It’s like a ruthless assassin who requires you to dodge madness, chaos and stupidity every single f– day.

I’m still fat. I have dark maroon nails. I am happily miserable. Who isn’t anyway?
